Can't believe there's no thread on this match.

Stan breaks back after getting broken on his opening serve.

I think Stan will pull this out. Anderson's serve is doing well as expected, but I have faith in Wawrinka's confidence and will to win.

To quote a different poster from yesterday "he's got a forehand on both sides".

That one hander is dirty. He hits it like it owes him money.

Anderson seems to be on a hot run lately. Surprising from what I view as a pretty one dimensional player.

Been impressed with Anderson. He really could have won the Dimi match -- it came down to a DF and a let cord.

LoL Stan took a MTO after losing 1st set. Would have been funny if Kevin got angry and complaint about it to the chair umpire.
But then Kevin seems to be a nice well behaved guy.

I wouldn't call K Anderson a servebot. I used to think he was. He isn't. It's not just the serve that's hurting Stan in this match. Kevin's hitting deep and forcing Stan to defend more. And Stan's defense is pretty average for a top 5 player.

Kevin breaks!

Geez, why does has EVERYONE been getting injured playing Anderson lately? Of all players. Ferrer now Stanimal. Wish they did this against like Dimitrov or Thiem, or some lesser players. I don't want Anderson in the top 15, let alone top 10.

GREAT, I just lost my TV signal. Either because of Tennis Channel or the Thunderstorm I'm getting right now. Probably the latter :evil:

LoL it doesn't matter if you don't like him. He's playing good.

I know, I know. Funny thing is, I don't really know why I dislike him so much? I'm a fan of Isner and have high hopes for Raonic. I don't even mind the 7ft Dr. Just something about Anderson makes me want to see him lose, kind of mean, I know :-|

Well, Wawrinka is up 4-3 now. Seems to have woken up.

Nad fans want Stan to win or lose ?

Bites both ways.. He is the enemy for taking the AO at the same time if he loses, Fed's and Novak's chances are that much higher.

Good question. I guess we'll be seeing all those "Stan's AO victory was a fluke!"-claims all over the place again when he loses... :rolleyes:
On the other side of things, I can't imagine Nadal fans to be happy to see him lose, as he may (or not, of cause) be the only one around being able to take out Fed before the final right now. ;)

In other words, the answer to this question will all be a matter whether these Nad fans are indeed genuine Nadal fans, or rather, Federer haters. ;)

On the match: great performance from Kevin so far!

Win of course. Just because he beat Nadal doesn't mean I can't support him against other players.
